This event highlighted resources and cross-sector partnership opportunities to maximize and leverage the increased investments for child care and Head Start programs through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. The first part of the webinar included a brief panel presentation on ARP Act early childhood (EC) priorities and guidance from Administration for Children and Families (ACF) leaders: Ms. Katie Hamm, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Early Childhood Development; Dr. Ruth Friedman, Director, Office of Child Care; and Shawna Pinckney, Director of Grants Division, Office of Head Start. During the second part of the webinar, invited participants joined small breakout discussion groups organized by the 10 regional locations and included a National TA Center breakout. The breakouts included time for peer-to-peer networking with other regional and state EC leaders shared promising strategies, identified barriers and challenges, and explored partnership opportunities for ARP Act implementation.
